|UPPERCASE magazine, Issue 16|
cover design by Debbie Smyrh
Marking four years of this quarterly magazine, Home Sweet Home, is about 'looking back -and staying in. Techniques, traditions and styles of other centuries and other histories influence in fresh ways.' And beautifully illustrating these themes on the cover of issue16 is the pin and thread drawing of textile artist Debbie Smyth.
Inside, the magazine continues to celebrate all things creative with contents that span art and design, places/spaces and style: illustrator Julia Rothman 'honours the important people in her life' through her Kind Soles
Studio looks at how a Swedish hospital for those suffering from cholera and a former transit repair facility in Toronto became work/life communities for artists
A recurring feature in UPPERCASE is Blog Beautiful: a column highlighting a chosen blog, traditionally nominated by the previous blog (person) profiled. So many, many thanks to Hazel Terry of Art Room Plant for nominating me and to Janine Vangool for choosing 13threads as this issue's Blog Beautiful. It is an absolute honour!
